Routers can be your best friend if you are looking for a device that can help you get premium-quality internet accessibility. If you want to store the settings of your home Wi-Fi network, then the router can do that. It can also let you make changes in changes in the settings using the router's software, also known as firmware. With the help of this, you can alter the password, rename your network, create a guest network and make other modifications as per your desire. Other than that, you need to fill in the right IP address or in the given space of the browser.

Getting The Access To Wi-Fi Router's Settings!

• To log in, you need to select a browser of your choice and then fill in the IP address in the given space. Most of the routers can work using IP but this thing can vary depending on model to model so you need to confirm the address in advance.
• If you are using Window 7, click on the Start button and type cmd in the search field, and press Enter. If you are using Windows 10, then you need to type cmd in the Cortana search field and press Enter. Then, you need to scroll to the top of the window. Here you will find the Default Gateway under Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Well, the number next to the router is your IP address. Note it down for future needs.
• Start with typing in the IP address in the given space of your browser and press Enter. You will get to the login admin of your router where you need to enter the required username and the password.
• Talking about the credentials, it is always recommended to create a unique username and password. Make sure you use a combination of alphabets, numerals, special characters, and symbols. As you fill in the required details, the router's firmware settings appear in front of you. This gives you the access to make changes as per your desire. You will get to enter screen after screen and you need to confirm the changes once you get to the next page. Once you are done with the settings, you need to log in again to the router. Close the browser once you are done with the whole process.
• If you are filling in the default credentials for the very first time, then you need to use the default username and password. You will find these on the user manual that comes along with the router. Many times, these details are also mentioned on the sticker of the router.
• Other than that, people often forget their passwords. To manage this, you can use the password recovery feature that is available in some routers. This option mostly appears if you use the wrong username or password or both. A window will appear in front of you where you need to enter the serial number of your router. You will get one on the bottom or side of your router.

If you can’t find one, then you need to use the default username and password for your router. You can get the details of all the default credentials directly on Google. All you need is to fill in the brand name of the router such as "Netgear router default username and password" or “TP-Link router default username and password."

All in all, you can manage the changes in the username and password of the router simply by typing in the right details. Your chances of setting up the router become better if you use the right IP address and update the firmware as well as the browser.
